Lukoil will present the results of its exploration wells drilled in the North Caspian Sea in Houston in June and will start looking for possible partners, according to a statement. Lukoil has found hydrocarbons in all six wells it made in the North Caspian, Vagit Alekperov, said. “We are looking at different ways of attracting partners to our block, and will possibly give them ten to twenty percent, but in any case our company will be the operator,” he said. Lukoil plans to start commercial production gradually at its seven fields in the North Caspian, starting with extracting 320,438 barrels a day of oil and gas condensate at Khvalynsky and Korchagin fields in 2005-2006, he said.
Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled "Evil Defeated by Good", representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987
